Celebrity Jersey Cards #264 Philip Seymour Hoffman & Chris Pratt

This is a regular series which attempts to combine my lifelong passion for trading cards with my semi-professional interest in celebrities.  Today, we continue working our way alphabetically through Major League Baseball.

Veteran actor Philip Seymour Hoffman portrayed Oakland A's manager Art Howe in "Moneyball."  Unfortunately, the native New Yorker passed away in 2014.  I am not even sure he is wearing a jersey on this Celebrity Jersey Card, but the rest of it is as authentic as can possibly be.
Scott Hatteberg was carving out a decent major league career with the Boston Red Sox as a catcher.  When he signed with the A's, they converted him to a first baseman.  His part in "Moneyball" was played by Chris Pratt.  Born in Minnesota, but raised in Washington, is a Seattle fan, but for that role and for this Celebrity Jersey Card, he is wearing the green and gold.
